Round up at 1800 Hrs --- Jammu – Srinagar Highway Opened for Traffic Number of People Rescued Crosses 2,37,000 in J&K (16 September 2014)

Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, NH-1A has been opened for traffic today, by the sustained efforts of Border Roads Organisation (BRO) and Army Engineers. The major impediment to opening the NH was a massive landslide at Ramsoo near Ramban, where over 300 metres of road had been entirely washed away leaving a sheer cliff of 80 degrees slope. Undeterred, the engineers worked night and day to make a new passage through the mountain slope. This led to the crossing over of more than 150 stranded vehicles which moved from Banihal to Jammu.
